MEDA is hiring! Are you in?
Mission Promise Neighborhood Positions
In December 2012, MEDA was awarded a five-year implementation grant from the Department of Education to implement the Mission Promise Neighborhood, a community-based effort to improve education and create family economic stability for Mission District families through a cradle-to-college-to-career continuum of services. This initiative involves 26 community-based organization partners, as well as the San Francisco Office of Mayor Ed Lee, City of San Francisco government agencies, and the San Francisco Unified School District as close collaborators in the implementation effort. MEDA is the lead agency, fiscal agent and project manager for the Mission Promise Neighborhood.
This initiative seeks to improve academic achievement and family economic success in the lowest performing schools in the Mission district of San Francisco. The four schools targeted for first phase of the Mission Promise Neighborhood implementation include: César Chávez Elementary School, Bryant Elementary School, Everett Middle School and John O’Connell High School.
MEDA is hiring a number of positions. Some of these are specifically related to the Mission Promise Neighborhood, and others are associated with MEDA’s asset programs, fund development, policy and administration and operations. Each of these positions are listed below.
